Somebody asked me this and I didn't really know how to respond so I thought I would ask the forum.
They are looking to secure an Internet connectiion to their organisation that will support about 60 users. The connection is to be used for e-mail and Internet. It's a dedicated circuit offering fixed national traffic speed of about 20Mbs and international up to 2Mbs but burstable up to 5Mbs.
A vendor who would also provide some services were recommending a Fortigate solution that would provide firewall and IDS. They said a Fortigate 100D would be their recommended model (at about $5K) so provide the resiliency and speed required. The connection would also have to support up to say 10 VPN connections (IPSEC).
That seemed pretty expensive so I just did a quite look at the Fortigate web site and noticed their 40C model is rated up to 200Mbs and seemed like it would do the job.
Just wondering what forum members think of this and perhaps have any personal recommendations.
